Your sign off
Signature is a place for your sign off eg Name, Role, Company
You can use an address you set at setup, or in the Shortcut dictionary action. When opening in Pages/HTML the address will be right justified. Because it is using HTML to right justify its not really an option if you want to output text. Use commas, to indicate you want to use a new line, commas are not shown in the output.
Example output opened in Pages
